2022 Annual Survey

Survey gals

Goal of Survey:

Survey galsIn the survey for Young Adults, we will ask questions about your physical and mental health and behaviors, your experiences that contribute to health throughout your life, your ability to access and use healthcare, and COVID-19 infection and vaccination. These questions help us understand how our participants’ lives and health change over time, including during a global pandemic. As you all continue to get older, Project Viva Investigators are interested in better understanding your health as young adults.

Survey galsIn the survey for Moms, we will ask questions about your physical and mental health and behaviors, your experiences that contribute to health throughout your life, your ability to access and use healthcare, and COVID-19 infection and vaccination. These questions help us understand how our participants’ lives and health change over time, including during a global pandemic. As in previous surveys, these parent surveys are no longer asking questions about your Viva children (we’re asking your Viva children themselves!), and instead are asking about Viva parents’ individual experiences. Project Viva Investigators are interested in looking at how these pieces of your daily life affect your overall health over time.

• Even if you have not participated with Viva in recent visit visits or questionnaires, or if you are a Viva mom or young adult participating individually, your contributions are just as valued. Please join us in this important work!

• If you’re not comfortable answering some of the questions on these surveys, that’s okay! Any responses that you give are valuable to us, you don’t have to answer any question that you don’t want to answer.

• Your continued participation in this survey helps us to further our very important work in Project Viva, as well as our collaboration with the ECHO Program. Your participation is crucial to our mission to improve the health of children for generations to come. Thank you for your continued participation!


Eligibility:

Young Adults and Parents will receive 2022 Annual Survey. If we have an email address on file for you, we will send the questionnaire to you via email. Project Viva is no longer enrolling new participants. If you are an enrolled Project Viva participant and want to participate or if you have not received the Questionnaire for Young Adults or Questionnaire for Parents and think that you should have, please click below to email us about your interest!


Survey Details:

Collecting contact information for fathers/other parental figures: We would like to collect contact information for your/your Viva young adult’s biological father and any other father figures (e.g. adoptive father, stepfather) or parental figures (e.g. your/your Viva mom’s female or non-binary partner). Please note that providing this contact information will not enroll these individuals into Project Viva or in any way obligate them to participate. In the future, we will reach out to invite them to be a part of the study and if they agree, ask questions about their health and background. As always, you should feel free to skip any questions that you do not feel comfortable answering. We will also provide a space where you can offer additional information that you may want us to know about your/your Viva young adult’s relationship with biological fathers/parental figures, or about why you chose not to provide this information.

ECHO Addendum: If you have not previously provided a consent response for the ECHO program, there will be an ECHO-specific addendum at the beginning of the survey. This addendum is NOT related to your participation in Project Viva or your participation in this survey. As a reminder, Project Viva is collaborating with ECHO—a research program launched by the National Institutes of Health that includes over 50,000 participants and is striving to understand the effects of environmental influences on child health and development. You will not see an addendum if you have already provided a response to an ECHO consent in a previous visit or survey.

Return code: If you’re unable to complete your survey in one sitting, you can save your progress on the survey and come back to it later. Just make sure to click the “Save and Return” button at the end of the page and write down the provided return code. When you are ready to resume the questionnaire, click the survey link again, and enter the code to finish the survey where you left off.

Contact Information: At the end of each survey, we’ll ask you to update your contact information. Especially as our Viva kids are becoming young adults and their own research participants separate from their Viva moms, and as Viva moms will be invited to participate in Women’s Health-focused research, it is important that we are able to contact each of our participants directly to share new participation opportunities and research findings.

Comments: Many participants have written to us in the comments section at the end of these surveys – thank you! We encourage all of you to send us any feedback you may have at any time and we will take it into careful consideration and work to move forward in the best way we can. We are grateful for this thoughtful feedback, it helps us to learn, grow, and better understand our participants.

Raffle: After completing this survey, you will be entered into a raffle where five participants will win $50 in e-gift cards each month.

Survey Results:

Coming soon! We will post some initial findings from the 2022 Annual Survey here once the survey is closed at the end of the year!
